How To Burn Calories Doing Almost Nothing

Before I traveled to dear Lily’s, I contemplated whether to wear my favorite footwear–ultra-comfy sneaks–or trusty hiking boots–great for the snowy, icy climate I was heading into. The latter won and I felt content with my decision as I hiked through snowy landscapes.

But in the past few days, the more walking I did, the more bruised my left foot felt. I needed sneaks. Thanks to Lily’s closet, I had options.

This morning I laced up a pair of sneakers that cushioned parts of my feet, but pinched my toes and made the bruise feel more painful. I took those off and put on sneakers that supported my feet better, but pained my toes. I untied those and found a third pair, two inches longer in the toe. Too roomy. So I took those off and put on clogs. Too tight in the toe. Next I tried on some shoes that fit perfectly, but had no cushioning, which hurt my back.

Almost an hour later, I was as ravenous as if I had walked several miles. Welcome to my new exercise routine.

  1. Lily must have had an amazing closet. I’m sure she would have heartily approved of your new exercise regime—she definitely would have thought up something extremely witty to pen her comments on your site. . . . .
